Anne, in Sudbury, PA, wrote to Susan, no address. The letter isn't addressed to Susan, but her name is written on the second page. Names included: Col. Livingston, Mr. Swift, Major Edwards, Cousin Tilghman, Mr. J. Smith, Mr. Smith, Betsy, and Mr. Rutherford. Anne regrets she can't attend an invitation to visit Basking Ridge, NJ. Notable quote: "You Jersey ladies really have the advantage over all the Americans and engross the Beaux entirely, while we poor creatures here hardly see the face of one a week."
Susan Livingston, later Susan Kean and Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
